Product Description

Salt by Danielle Ellison

Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she's been pretending to be something she's not, using her sister's magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.

When she's finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister's help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find "her" demon. To take back what was stolen.

Then she meets Carter. He's cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.

Suddenly, Penelope's impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter's not telling her everything, and it's starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda…and they're far too interested in her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something for Everyone 9 January 2014

Witches hunting demons. A girl with everything to prove and a secret she is desperate to keep hidden. A mysterious boy with secrets of his own who does strange and wonderful things to the heroine's heart rate (when she doesn't want to strangle him, lol). A quest that leads to more questions than answers, and may or may not reveal truths that will rock the very foundation of the world the girl and boy live in.

Any of that sound good to you? If you answered yes, then Salt's got your name on it.

Whether you're into action, humor, magic, mystery, or you're all about the romance, you'll find some or all of what you're looking for within this book's pages. It's got a bit of everything for everyone. For me, the biggest draw was Pen's relentless search for the demon that stole her magic - a search that took her down roads she never expected to travel. Following along as Pen played detective, unearthing clues and trying to piece it all together, was boat loads of fun. I also enjoyed the world-building. It wasn't too much, and wasn't too little - it was just right. And of course the romance. I'm a sucker for the romance every time, and Pen and Carter gave me an interesting one. It wasn't quite instalove, but it wasn't an agonizingly slow burn either. It fell neatly in the middle, and that worked for me.

Hands down, though, the best part of the book for me was the final 15-20%. Author Danielle Ellison explained certain key mysteries in a way I didn't expect, and better still, she did it in a way that didn't seem too far-fetched or "out there". It was like a million light bulbs turning on, all at once, and suddenly, all the things I'd been scratching my head over, or hadn't been able to quite put my finger on, made perfect sense. It was rather brilliant, actually.

What Salt did best, in my opinion, was prepare the stage for the series. The sets have been built, the actors are in place, and now, it's just a matter of seeing how it all plays out. There are plenty of story avenues left to pursue, and just enough plot threads left dangling to leave fans hungry for more.

If that is even a word lol

As soon as I read the blurb for Salt a few months ago, I wanted to read it immediately and was sad to have to wait. But now that I have read it, I can happily say that it was definitely worth that wait! I could not put it down and anytime something mundane made me pause in my reading, I growled in frustration! It was full of fast paced action, heart thumping moments, and swoon worthy hot guy moments from the very beginning. Both Penelope and Carter were easy to relate to and in no time I was in love with them both! I can not wait to find out what happens next!

I absolutely adored this book. It had all the right ingredients - it was fun, magic-y, spunky, and just plain awesome. It doesn't hurt to have a strong main female character and a cute mysterious boy. If you're like me and you love TV shows like Supernatural and Buffy, you're going to love SALT by Danielle Ellison.

I couldn't read this fast enough and I cannot wait for the next book! Read this book, you won't be sorry!

I didn't expect that much from this book. When I bought it I though that it would be the same as always.. all the books are pretty much the same.. different characters same history, i liked this because it was a little bit different. Furthermore, i liked the way Danielle writes. I reccomend this book for anyone who wants to read to have fun, it's not a profound book you know. I look forward for the next one.

I really didn't know what to expect, but was excited to read Ellison's first book and I am so glad I did! The story grabbed me from the very beginning and I loved the twists and turns. The characters have depth and are very relatable. I can't wait for more!
